I have generally good experiences with the Manfrotto 055CXPRO3 but do not know the MePhoto at all. The Manfrotto is quick to use, light to carry and pretty stable (have used it with a smaller Manfrotto ball head as well as a geared head). No problem taking sharp long exposures during strong wind unless you want to use 70mm+ then. I even use it as base for the Astrotrac star tracking device, however then you should have no wind at all when using something like a 400mm

Typical downside for a carbon tripod - very top heavy. Only addition I would like would be a hook to hang something heavy (like the backpack) from the center column for even better stabilization.
